Unity Friends Blog Hop

** Click Here for the DCWV + Clear Scraps Blog Hop! **

Welcome to a special Unity Stamp Company blog hop with some Unity friends! I'm so excited to be a part of such a fun hop for the new releases AND the Brown Thursday sale... 55% off the entire Unity site! I have a lot of projects to share so I'll get right to it...



I made one project for each new release set. First up is the new "Candy Hearts" stamp set! I created a little matchbook box to hold some Valentine candy inside.



Next up is a simple sympathy card using the Unity Stamp "Everything More"



I have one more card to share, which was a lot of fun to put together. I just cut a lot of strips from pattern paper and lined them along the card base. Then I distressed the stamped image with inks before applying it to the card. This uses the "Hope Builds Courage" Unity stamp.



Lastly, I'm sharing a fast art journal page I made. I got some brand new-to-me Twinkling H2O's and I just really wanted to play. So this little page uses a stamp from "Lasting Thoughts".



Be sure to visit all the lovely talented ladies on today's hop!  LEAVE a comment on my BLOG Post and you have a CHANCE to WIN a GRAB BAG of 20 STAMPS from Unity! :)  Winners will be picked and ANNOUNCED on the Unity Blog and FACEBOOK PAGE on Tuesday Morning!

  26. Oh that little 'match book like box from the new set is so dang cute. I can see this for a child to pass out as her Velentines at school. Very creative. The Sympathy card and sentiment is lovely in those soft colors with the brighter flowers. Nice. The last card is so pretty how you distress colored the stamped part then put it over the strips if background. Perfect coloring for this stamp - kinda rainbow colors and hope! The journal page is just beautiful and seems to be a perfect fit for that great stamp. Think I'd like to try some of that Twinkling H20. It's beautiful!! Thank you for sharing your creativity and new stuff (to me) .
